Singer Beyoncé and Jay Z's ten-year-old, Blue Ivy, placed a bid of over $80,000 for a pair of diamond earrings during a charity art function. The Grammy-winning duo got married in April 2007 and, almost three years later, welcomed their first child together, Blue. Their twins, Sir and Rumi, were born in July 2017.

While the famous family is known to lead a fiercely private life, they have attended every iteration of the Tina Knowles organized event. In the 2018 gala, Blue made a bid of almost $20,000 for a painting; however, she lost to Tyler Perry.

This year, Blue went to work bidding again, but with a considerably higher amount. While Perry was in the audience, the filmmaker was not the one who stole her thunder this time around.

Blue Ivy Placed A Bid Of Over $80,000

Blue joined her parents, Grammy-winning artists Beyoncé and Jay Z, at the Los Angeles 2022 Wearable Art Gala, held on October 22. The 10-year-old wasn't just a spectator to the auction; she also placed a bid that soared past an amazing $80,000 for the highest ticket piece of the evening.

A clip of the event was shared by "Abbott Elementary" star Quinta Bronson on the writer's Instagram story. The actress cheered Blue on while she, under the supervision of her parents, bid for a pair of diamond Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

While the diamond earrings previously belonged to Beyoncé, it was her mother, Tina Knowles, that had the jewelry on that night. Tina is the co-founder of the WACO Theater Center and event organizer. She was also an honorary chair during the gala.

Blue Ivy Lost The Bid

Bronson's video started with Keke Palmer asking the crowd if they would let the item go for $80,000. She said, "$80,000, y'all going to let her take it? $80,000, going once. $80,000, going twice and —." The 10-year-old cut her off mid-sentence when she jumped from her seat and waved her panel.

Bronson, from behind the camera, said, "Blue! She's so rich," after Blue placed her bid. However, she was ultimately outbid by Monique Rodriguez and her husband, Melvin. The Mielle Organics founder made a hefty $105,000 bid and beat Blue to the diamond earrings which previously belonged to her mother.

Blue Ivy Once Bid $19,000 For An Item

This is not Blue's first rodeo placing bids on items. In 2018, at just six years old, she bid $17,000 during a previous iteration of the gala. She attended the event with her parents again; however, her item of interest at the time was not jewelry.

The 10-year-old wanted to purchase an acrylic painting of a younger version of Sidney Poitier. Blue eventually went higher in her bid to $19,000, to the horror of Jay Z, who jokingly tried to stop her from increasing the amount. The item was ultimately won by Perry, who offered $20,000.

Despite the loss, the 10-year-old went home with something. Via Vanity Fair, Blue placed a bid of $10,000 on an art piece created using deconstructed law as well as medical books. She won the 36" x 36" artwork.
